Jadon Sancho has officially embarked on a six-month loan to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United, following his exclusion by Erik ten Hag from Old Trafford.
Ten Hag attributed Sancho’s absence from the squad against Arsenal to subpar training performances. In response, the winger issued a social media statement after the defeat, alleging that the manager was unfairly making him the scapegoat for the team’s poor results.
Consequently, Ten Hag decided to banish Sancho from all first-team activities, asserting that an apology was the sole path to reintegration into the squad. With no apology materializing, Sancho has now secured a loan move for the remainder of the season with his former club, Borussia Dortmund.
Speaking to Dortmund, he explained that he feels like rejoining the club “feels like coming home” after he spent a number of years at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK.
“When I came into the dressing room today, it felt like ‘coming home’,” he said. “I know the club inside and out, I’ve always been very close with the fans here, and I’ve never lost contact with those in charge.
“I can’t wait to see my teammates again, go out on the pitch, play football with a smile on my face, prepare goals, score goals and help qualify for the Champions League.”
Dortmund will pay a £3 million loan fee rising to £6.4 million for the player’s services during the six-month loan, with them and Manchester United splitting the payment of his wages.
